GM GETS THE "GREEN THING" RIGHT

GM GETS THE "GREEN THING" RIGHT

Los Angeles Convention Center

General Motors, hands-down, won the Car Nut's contest at this year's LA Auto Show. Their big 'Tahoe' SUV, equipped with "The General's" all-new automatic transmission which, when working in tandem with "Active Fuel Management" which chooses between using all 8 or just 4 of the 6.0 liter engine's cylinders, can increase fuel mileage by about 40% or even a bit more. From diesel to bio-diesel to gas/electric hybrids to fuel cell vehicles which use helium as their 'fuel', their only exhaust being pure H2O, we can see that big changes are coming to the US auto industry and we need to be ready for them. Also, note the dearth of celebrities (or anyone else, for that matter) helping to "work" GM's exhibit space and information booth, and the lack of show-goers looking at the Volt.
